Summary:

Council Regulation of 30 October 2019 fixing, for the commercially most important fish stocks in the Baltic Sea, the fishing opportunities for Member States for 2020.

Further information:

In accordance with Regulation (EU) No 1380/2013 on the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), the exploitation of living marine biological resources shall restore and maintain populations of harvested species above levels which can produce the maximum sustainable yield (MSY). One important tool in this respect is the annual fixing of fishing opportunities in the form of total allowable catches (TACs) and quotas.

Regulation (EU) 2016/1139 establishing a multiannual management plan for the stocks of cod, herring and sprat in the Baltic sea and the fisheries exploiting those stocks further specifies the values of fishing mortalities expressed as ranges, which are used in order to reach the objectives of the CFP, especially reaching and maintaining the MSY.

The European Commission presented a proposal on 30 August 2019, and the Council of the European Union adopted its position on this proposal on 15 October.
